Today's blog post is going to be about two products that I find very similar. It's the Milk Cooling Water Stick and Elf Prep and Hydrate Balm. The Milk Cooling Water stick is $24 for 1.2 oz and $14 for .12 oz. The Elf Prep and Hydrate Balm is $8 for .51 oz.
The reason I find them so similar is because, plainly, they're both cooling. I have both and I prefer the Elf Prep and Hydrate because it's more hydrating in my opinion and I use it under my makeup or on it's own all the time. I have the travel size of the Milk Cooling Water stick and it's quite small. The regular size of most Milk balm stick products, ie: Matcha Toner, Matcha Cleanser, Holographic Stick, Cooling Water, etc. is around 1.2 oz. They're thicker and bulky and that's fine but I prefer the Elf balm because it's easier to apply in my opinion.
The Milk Cooling Water is "A soothing seawater, caffeine-infused gel stick to de-puff eyes and energize the look of skin. " The Elf Prep and Hydrate is " Enriched with purified water, Shea, and Vitamin E to help nourish and moisturize." I will say that upon contact I think the Milk Cooling Water feels just a little bit colder but only a little. The Elf Prep and Hydrate has a perfume fragrance to me that is really noticeable so if you don't like that, this isn't for you. Point blank. If fragrance doesn't bother you I think you'd enjoy the Elf Prep and Hydrate just as much as the Milk Cooling Water stick.
Milk is available at Sephora. Elf is available on their website, at Target, Walmart, and Ulta.
